Happy Manhattan Monday everyone. I’ve finally gotten my hands on some worthwhile vermouth and I’ve been saving the last of my defiancewhiskey for just this occasion. I paired them up with some Bittermilk Bourbon Barrel Aged Old Fashioned bitters & I think it’s a winning combo.
1 oz (30 ml) House-Made Jalapeño-Infused Vodka
1 oz (30 ml) Tequila Plata or Silver
6 oz (180 ml) Fresh Cucumber Puree*
½ oz (15 ml) Fresh Lime Juice
½ oz (15 ml) Agave Nectar
1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, cucumber puree, lime juice and agave nectar with ice.
2. Shake well and discard ice.
3. Coat the rim of a glass with Tajin salt.
4. Pour over fresh ice. Garnish with a slice of fresh lime and cucumber.
*For the cucumber puree: Clean and cut the ends off one cucumber and simply muddle in a blender with a splash of water.
